    Beyond graduation: Long-term socioeconomic outcomes amongst equity students (NCSEHE)

    This report aimed to address significant gaps in scientific knowledge about the trajectories of post-graduation outcomes of students from equity groups by examining the following research questions: Do equity graduates reap the benefits of university education to the same extent as non-equity graduates over the short and long run?;  What are the differences in outcomes between graduates from different equity groups?; What are the specific outcome domains (e.g. labour market, social capital, wellbeing) where equity group graduates perform particularly well or particularly poorly? The research found that higher education could overcome social inequity in time, but outcomes for Indigenous graduates and those with disabilities often lagged.   (Funded by the NCSEHE.

    Universal Design for Learning to support nursing students: Experiences in the Field - Ireland

    Higher education institutions have an increasingly diverse student population and in response have developed a range of services to support students (HEFCE 2015). Therefore, there is increased pressure to embed most support within the general university provision. As a consequence, there is a resurgence of interest in the application of universal design principles in higher education to meet the needs of individual students (AHEAD 2017). As limited international literature is available about the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in nurse education; this paper will explore the application of these principles to support nursing students who have additional needs, in particular, in the practice setting.

    Embedding mental wellbeing in Australian regional universities: Equity interventions

    This paper outlines findings from a study of regional university students and mental health interventions that combined a desktop survey of web-based university resources and an integrative review of relevant literature. Our findings show that most Australian universities do not integrate their mental wellbeing support into the curriculum and that mental health professionals and educators typically work in silos. Consequently, universities only have limited success in addressing student wellbeing needs. We argue that there is a need to draw on best practice for embedding academic support as part of inclusive pedagogies and curricula, in order to extend these to include mental wellbeing support. (2018.
